I have worked for MF for 6+ years and I am not aware of a penalty system. I do not do a lot of work for them since I am anti-FF but I consistently get job offers with bonuses by email, text message and phone calls,
I'm fairly certain that griffy is 99% correct in his reincarnation theory. He (BTS, not BG) is from Texas, right?@bgriffin wrote:

I don't doubt that your experience with MF is a real one. Three errors on three reports within a 2-day period? I would have given you the boot also.@Big Time Shopper wrote:
My experience with MF is a real one. I had three errors on three reports in 1 week, and was deactivated. If you make three mistakes in a short period of time, you'll get the boot from Market Force...
NOTE TO NEWBIES - This is a perfect example of what NOT to do. Not paying attention while filling out reports? BTS, are you really that surprised that you got deactivated from MF?@Big Time Shopper wrote:
But the desire to make as much money as I could in a day caused me to do as many as 8 shops per day for MF. I was so used to filling out the reports that I barely paid attention to them--I was on automatic. That was my downfall with MF. I made 3 mistakes in two days...
If this is true, why didn't you take a crowbar to your wallet and get a motel/hotel room for the night? You do realize that it is tax-deductible business expense, right?@Big Time Shopper wrote:
I once did 6 Red Gas Station audits in Denton, TX on a freezing day during a bleak winter for MF. I had to use WIFI at the local library and McDonalds. The 6 shops were bonused at $50 per. I finished my reports by 10pm, got paid $300 for the day, and slept on the side of the road south of Stratford TX during a blizzard bundled in 4 sleeping bags.
I think perhaps your problem was thinking $300 in fees in a day was good.
As a matter of fact, I do own my own house. Not a $500,000 house but it is a 6-digit figure house. I didn't need BG or anyone else to help me; I did it on my own. A great credit score, some money in the bank and stable work history helps big time.@Big Time Shopper wrote:
But no way can we compete with you, bgriffin--you make so much more than we do by video shopping. You and Sybil2--I'm surprised you both haven't bought your $500,000 house yet with your MSing windfall.
.... I enjoy MF and hope to stay on as long as they'll have me

Sybil, you say "I have worked for MF for 6+ years." No shopper works for MF. You are an independent contractor.
As for MF's penalty system, it is three errors and you are out for good. It isn't possible for a person who love's life like I do to perform 1000+ shops (as I did) and not make three errors. In my case, I submitted two reports on the same night, but entered the same time of entry and departure on both--and that counted as two mistakes. My third sin was asking a car hop to correct my order. All three of my mistakes occurred during the same week (my last week) at this company.
I'm sorry, but I've been in this business now a total of 33 years and not once have I ever made mistakes carrying the gravity of the three you list. And even if I had a "Three Strikes" policy, the morning I read your reports with the duplicate times, would have been the last morning I woke with you as a vendor I used or trusted. But let's say it was my day off and those invalid reports somehow were kept from my attention, the morning I saw you invalidated an evaluation by blatantly disregarding guidelines on which you were trained AND tested, would certainly have been the day I chose to give you a lot more time to go love your life.
It sounds to me, what with the duplicate timings on your reports coupled with the general disposition of your reply, that perhaps you are embittered about some underlying issue and that perhaps you might be fibbing just little when professing to love life as much as you claim to.
